#1 – Haggis
Haggis is a kind of pudding made from the liver, lungs, and heart of a sheep, combined with oatmeal and beef and seasoned with cayenne peppers, onions, and other spices. This combination is then packed into a sheep’s stomach and boiled. It is usually served along with mashed potatoes and turnips. In fact, haggis is the national dish of Scotland.
At present, haggis is banned from being imported into the US. In 1971, the United States banned all foods that are composed of animal lungs. Scotland has attempted many times to influence the US into lifting the ban on this food and changing federal food safety regulations, but they have failed each time.
